    I have been working at Brinker Capital (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Growth company, good corporate niche, entrepreneurial, truly focused on serving clients, management respectful of work/life business

    Cons

    Recent technology upgrades posed challenges

    Advice to Management

    Expand product diversification, otherwise keep culture of growth and client service up

    I have been working at Brinker Capital full-time

    Pros

    Culture is tough to beat. Hours are very reasonable. Flat rather than hierarchical structure in virtually all departments.

    Cons

    Seems to comfortable with status quo at some times. This can be advantageous in an industry where it's easy to chase hot money, but detrimental in that the company sometimes seems to avoid confronting the trends that are challenging its business model.

    Advice to Management

    Think like an investment firm first and sales firm second, not vice versa.

    Pros

    Excellent environment. Great benefits, vacation, events, and coworkers.

    Cons

    Nothing out of the ordinary.

    Advice to Management

    Out with the old, in with the new!

    I worked at Brinker Capital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ample parking. Close to Chester Valley Trail. Nice fountain in lobby. Kitchen fridge is kept clean - for the most part. Large computer monitors.

    Cons

    Many (not all) in senior mgt exhibit vindictive, dishonest, backstabbing behavior. A majority of associates are non-communicative introverts who exit the office at 5pm as if the bldg was on fire.

    Advice to Management

    For the most part, my suggestions to mgt were ignored - so I have no expectation that any advice offered in this venue will be acted upon, let alone read.

    I worked at Brinker Capital as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is good and good experience.

    Cons

    You started working in 1 department then they want you to "help out" in other departments and still pay you for 1 job & if you want a full time salary position at the end of the internship they say they don't have a position.

    Pros

    Strong sense of community, supportive environment, friendly and interested management.

    Cons

    Size of company can lead to limited career advancement opportunities. Only one location, meaning if you move away, there's no opportunity to transfer within the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote from within before looking for outside help to fill positions.
